About Us

Brad and Cindy Thompson founded First Choice Custom Homes in 2003. Brad brought to the business more than twenty years of experience in the masonry and grading business. Cindy brings a passion for creating custom home environments that reflects the owners’ individual tastes and personalities.

Brad has a technical expertise and attention to detail that is unrivaled in Upstate South Carolina and is complemented by Cindy’s eye for style and sense of functionality. Beyond the unique attributes that each brings to the table, First Choice Custom Homes’ homeowners consider Brad and Cindy their personal friends even after the building process, something that most building teams cannot say! They are both active in the homebuilder’s network of businesses and are members of the Greenville HBA, BBB and the Chamber of Commerce.



“The most important factor in building our custom home was at the final completion when we were left standing in our home 100% satisfied and in love with the finished product. It’s simply superior craftsmanship done by thoughtful homebuilders.”
